Hidersine Vivente Reviews
'It's the best starter violin. The quality of the product is really good.’ - Sarah
‘I’ve only just begun learning the violin and love this violin. Even the tutor liked it and was fab to hear its potential from her.’ - Orna O
Top Quality at an Affordable Price
The Hidersine Vivente Violin won the MIA Award for 'Best Stringed Instrument' 2015.
So you're looking for a quality student violin for sale at an accessible price, this is the violin for you.
Hidersine Vivente instruments feature a solid Spruce top, and solid Maple ribs and backs too. These solid tonewood sections enhance the instrument’s natural tone, creating a warm, sweet tone.
Eye Catching Finish
The solid Maple body is further enhanced by a ‘graphic flame’ finish - a special finishing technique which gives the appearance of top quality flamed maple, at a fraction of the cost. So your Vivente violin has the appearance of a much more exclusive instrument.
The Hidersine Vivente Violin produces a tone that will continually improve as you play your new instrument. As the wood ages, and the solid tonewood relaxes, your violin will resonate even more naturally and the sound will improve further.
The Hidersine Vivente Violin has been built with durability in mind, making it a reliable long lasting investment.
It benefits from an ebony fingerboard and pegs. This prized hardwood is the top material of choice due to its durability. Ebony does not wear out from playing, making it sure to last. It’s also smooth on the fingers, which makes the playing experience more pleasant all round.
The Hidersine Vivente comes in four different sizes: 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 and Full size (4/4)
Most adults and children over the age of twelve play with a full size (4/4) violin. Smaller sizes are generally used by children who can’t yet stretch down the fingerboard.
It’s important to note that it’s far better for a child to stay on a smaller instrument for a longer period of time than to buy a bigger violin and wait for them to grow into it. Playing too large an instrument can lead to discomfort and potential injuries. Buying the correct size violin will help you to avoid this situation.
